    Silverwolf2 AES finally published

    With all the delays I didn't think I'd ever find time to get everything packaged and up on the new site but as of right now Silverwolf2 AES is finally available.

    This first release is v2.0.0.0 alpha1 with the next release having most if not all the remaining modules completed. Rather than going on about how great I think it is, just go to Intuition Systems and decide for yourself...

    Silverwolf2 AES specific pages are at:

    http://www.intuitionsys.com/projects.php?proj=sw2

    Enjoy!

    Hi. This looks really neat. I was trying to install it on my gentoo, but i can't figure out what package i need for soundcard.h (oss4 ? ). I've installed alsa-oss for example, but it didn't work. Can you help me?

    I'm not really sure what you mean. Maybe you could elaborate a bit...

    When you install OSS4 from www.opensound.com it should autodetect and set everything up for you. If you're using the Gentoo package (if they have one) make ABSOLUTELY sure you install OSS version 4. Version 3 WILL NOT WORK. You also need to deactivate any sound system you're currently using.

    Thanks for your fast answer.

    I managed to compile SW2, and i have a few questions / remarks.

    - Why didn't you include the tree and sql files in the src package?
    - How can i set a different screen resolution?
    - how can i launch (put on top from previous instance would be perfect) an external app for gps navigation?

    I think i may have a hundred more question coming

    Thanks in advance !

    Because it was just easier that way (for me)

    You'll need to stretch alot of the skin graphics (or create your own) and re-do the coords in skin.conf (skins are meant to be tied to a specific resolution so they look exactly as intended; most screens are 800x480 so that's the default I used for the default skin).

    Navigation support is being added in the next release. I have iGuidance myself so most of my efforts will be geared towards that initially. There will also be support for a video switch that my company sells (uses the parallel port) if you have an external navigation unit. That is mainly meant for cars that have built-in navigation already though. The short answer is that you'll need to wait a bit for navigation to be implemented.

    I would be interested to hear your results and the exact hardware you're using since it has only been tested on three platforms so far. I'm suprised you got all the dependencies resolved that quickly

    Could you elaborate a little what would be required to use another navigation app? that would be great. As you stated, compiling Silverwolf was quite straightforward, so i'm willing to go further

    My hardware is in my profile I'm just running a gentoo on top of it. If you want more details, feel free to ask My navigation app is Navit, btw.

    Edit : I was trying to import some audios files to the library. It wasn't working, and i didn't get why. Took me a while to figure out that my QT was compiled WITHOUT mysql support.
    Maybe you should add a check, and warn the user (or even don't start the app) if the connection to the DB can't be established (because i guess nothing will work without it).

    Edit2 : I recompiled QT with mysql support. Now i have no warnings at SW2 startup. But i can't import files into my library. I have some mp3 files in /Silverwolf2/ImportExport, i choose Import Audio files from FTP/SMB/Import but 0 are imported successfully. I don't know if that mean that all failed, or that none were found. Help welcome

    Some more thought are coming

    Apologies for the lateness of my response. I've been deluged with non-SW2-related stuff recently and was also on vacation for two weeks. Anyway, there are alot of checks and warnings that should be included but aren't. The first thing to check is that the file extension is mp3 (case-insensitive) on all the files. You also need the databases and tables set up beforehand. You can use the sql files from my site for building them automatically.

    The little time I've had to work on it, I have come across some glaring bugs so before you put your head through a wall I'd hold out for the next update. The update will have more modules completed and support for ogg/vorbis files.

    v2.0.0.2 is the most current release, and yes the default skin is dreadful Suggestions are always welcome (about functionality).
